Kasarabada.org welcomes all !

This week Sundarakanda moves to Chapter 53 .

In the Sundarakanda chapter 53 we have Ravana ordering his followers to set fire to Hanuman's tail and take him around the streets of the city of Lanka. Learning about the incident Sita prays to Lord Agni not to harm Hanuman and Hanuman realizes that he is beong protected by others!!

The two chapters of Sundarakanda that are visited more often are Chapter 1 and chapter 15. The Chapter 1 describes Hanuman's leap across the ocean and the chapter 15 describes Hanuman's first glimpse of Sita. These two chapters in fact have associated legends. Considering the traffic generated on these pages these pages have been updated. You can visit the Chapter 15 on Sita darsanam with Sanskrit slokas and Slokas in Telugu . Now It has more slokas.

As always we are intrigued by the lessons for this generation from the classics of the old. That is what we have from Hanuman under one more thing this week

The regular features as usual continue !! Yes, Telugu home Page is also getting updated resolving technology issues !!.

The Kathopanishad in Simple words continues with Part3, as continuation of earlier Part 1 and Part 2 - this goes as part of our Athato Brahma Jignyasa. This week Part 3 completes the Kathopanishad Second Adhyaya with Valli4. The Valli 1 and 2 were part of Part 1 . Part 2 covers the Valli 3 which threads through a few concepts of duality Jivaatma and Paramatma, Brahman the Un-manifested and the manifested , and the two goals namely one of reaching heaven and the other attaining Moksha. . The Athato page also carries links to interesting notes on Kathopanishad !! . Now we have quite a bit of material on Kathopanishad; and it is not complete!!

One more thing automatically carries an updated article " Jayamantram- The victory Slogan "!!

With this Ugadi we started a page in Telugu titled - "Subbalakshmigari Kalam loninchi" . There is also a technology change. We are adding language support so that Indian language text van easily be accepted . Readers may see a bit of not so well formatted texts on the Telugu pages. Hopefully this will be resolved.

The extracts of an old book( 1899) by an Oxford Scholar on the History of Sanskrit Literature , appeared earlier under "one more thing" !!

Along the same lines are the earlier articles in praise of Hunuman 1 , Hanuman 2 and Valmiki Sundarakanda . Added to this bouquet is the Sundarakanda as a Telugu poem by Pandit Vijayraghavrao. We have also added some downloads specifically for the Sankshipta Sundarakanda ( with Sanskrit slokas) reproduced in different language scripts namely Sanskrit , Telugu , Kannada and Malayalam . There is also a Telugu Sundarakanda Katha for those interested in reading the same as a prose story !!,.

One more thing is a page where we get articles which could be on anything , informative and educative handled with a light heart and a touch of contemporary realities. The page lists all the earlier stories on its page

The last new column is Athato Brahma Jignyasaa . This page is focused on Indian Philosophy /Darsanas. This has been started a few months ago and all its earlier issues are listed on its page
